Choosing a Counsellor can be very difficult and I feel that it is important to have some knowledge of your chosen therapist's working methods. I adopt more than one theoretical approach when working with my clients but predominately incorporate Person Centered which is a non judgemental, non authorative approach which gives an individual a safe environment to talk freely, and adjust negative self concepts often triggered by negative life events or relationships. Also Cognitive Behavioural techniques which involve identifying unhelpful patterns of thinking which often maintain feelings of anxiety, depression and low self esteem.

Welcome to my profile! If you are reading this there is a possibility you have made a decision you have had enough of dealing with life and its struggles on your own. This is a first step to embark on a journey of self-exploration and finding what and why is bothering you and more importantly, what can be done about it. Its daunting and hard. But struggling in isolation, as you might know, is also hard and exhausting. The experience of recent months, for which there is no manual or template, has tested your psychological resilience on many levels and you found yourself struggling more and more.

I am well aware that at times life can be difficult; you may feel anxious, over-whelmed, worried or just not right. Or you may feel that your past experiences are having an impact on how you deal with things in your life today. Talking with me could help you in a different way than talking to a friend of family member and this is primarily because you can be honest with me without me judging you.  I'm here to listen to you and to support you in working things out for yourself. My approach is open, honest and down-to-earth and I am a firm believer in the counselling process and the good that it can do.

Sometimes life can feel difficult and we may feel confused, lost or alone, even if we are surrounded by others. At times, we may struggle to cope, feeling low, anxious or overwhelmed. Being offered support to explore our difficulties and worries in a safe, confidential and empathic environment, free from judgement can help us feel less isolated and find our way again to a more hopeful and fulfilling way of being. I believe that the roots of our personal strengths often stem from difficulties we have experienced and that together, we can find what might be most helpful to you.

A lot of people carry deep hurts and unhealthy emotions from the past that can have a hugely detrimental affect on our current day behaviour, our relationships and our life in general. These hurts could include traumas, bereavement, loss, the breakdown of a relationship, abuse etc. These hurts could go back as far as childhood. But whenever and however the hurt happened, the result is often the same - unhealthy coping strategies as a way of dealing with our unmet emotional needs. More often than not, these defence mechanisms or coping strategies have kept you stuck in the same repetitive cycle, maybe even years.
